5 Reasons to Watch 'Strike Back'

by Crystal Bell, posted Oct 21st 2011 4:15PM
Cinemax has never really been known as a place for quality television, but it may have found a solid starting ground with its original drama series 'Strike Back.' The action-packed show combines what Cinemax knows best -- sex -- with heavy violence and some witty dialogue.

Think of it as a British take on '24,' and although it won't make you forget Jack Bauer, it is a thoroughly enjoyable action hero romp from a global perspective. The series has also been a moderate hit for Cinemax, and it was recently renewed for a second 10-part season.

'Alice' Stars On the Darker, Sexier Reimagining, Big Name Costars & More - VIDEO

Alice'Alice in Wonderland' fans have been eagerly awaiting Tim Burton's big screen live-action version for what feels like an eternity, and its release is still three months away. Luckily, there's another new take on the trippy classic out now: 'Alice,' a Syfy original miniseries (two-night premiere Sun., Dec. 6, and Mon., Dec. 7, 9PM ET).

Starring Caterina Scorsone as the titular Alice and Philip Winchester as her mysterious suitor Jack Chase, this reimagining looks at the tale from an entirely new and modern angle, much the way Syfy (then Sci Fi) did with 'Tin Man' a couple of years back. Not surprisingly, it's seen through the warped looking glass of the same director, Nick Willing.

AOL TV got Scorsone and Winchester to dish all about their parts in 'Alice,' how it's "darker" and "sexier" than the original, their costars -- including Tim Curry, Harry Dean Stanton and Kathy Bates -- and why filming in an abandoned tuberculosis hospital was just as creepy as it sounds.

Crusoe: Rum and Gunpowder (series premiere)

Crusoe
(S01E01)
I'm reading all over the place that this is a thirteen-part series. That sounds very ... British. In fact, it's a pretty damned promising idea. Imagine if more television shows in the US were allowed to have one season or even half a season and then be done. If they wanted to take a real-time approach it could run twenty-eight seasons! I wonder if this will inspire comparisons to Lost.

I figure a lot of people, in fact most people, won't have read the source material. So their idea of people stranded on an island is going to either be Lost or Gilligan's Island. If we're lucky, they'll stretch so far as Lord of the Flies. Certainly this is an ambitious project, promising us swashbuckling excitement. And yet even though the cold opening featured a potential dramatic rescue and gunfire, when the credits started I realized it hadn't raised my heart rate a bit. In fact, it was possibly the dullest action scene I'd ever seen.
